About Youth Stewardship Day
Promoting environmental stewardship is one of CASA's defining objectives. That's where our Youth Stewardship Event comes in. This hands-on youth volunteer opportunity helps develop a sense of personal responsibility for our outdoor spaces in a whole new generation.
This year, we're looking to do even better than the last two!
This opportunity to help keep our mountain beautiful is only the beginning. It's also an awesome way to introduce the world of climbing to these hard-working young people.
What is Youth Stewardship Day?
Picture this—middle school and high school students join together outdoors to perform stewardship on Mt. Lemmon.
Who may attend?
Middle and High school youth of Southern Arizona.
Registration is now open for everyone. See below for more details.
Engaging in local stewardship is a heck of a lot of fun! In honor of National Public Lands Day, this opportunity is for youth only. Come get inspired by exploration and adventure!

In 2017, 116 volunteers joined CASA on National Public Lands Day. We are proud to work with so many amazing people from all over Tucson taking care of Mt. Lemmon!
Nearly 90 youths and a couple dozen adult volunteers cleared brush on 3.5 miles of trails in the Catalina Mountains!

In 2016, CASA engaged 80 volunteers in Southern Arizona in our passion for protecting our outdoor spaces. On National Public Lands Day, 49 youth and 30 adults collected 675 gallons of trash at various spots on Mt Lemmon summit.
The enthusiasm of our volunteers was inspiring. Sharing our mission of stewardship with future generations is an important part of our organization. We're so grateful to all those who helped make that possible.
